In 2018 The National Honored Bandurist Capella of Ukraine celebrated its 100 years anniversary. It is the biggest and the oldest music band of the country. The poster was created to announce a special concert tour dedicated to this occasion. Poster idea is inspired by Ukrainian Avant-Garde art that was born in the same period of time - about 100 years ago. Folk art influence that is typical of this style helps to reflect repertoire of the band - traditional and patriotic songs of Ukraine. The main element of the design is bandura (musical instrument) with a sound hole in the shape of "play" button as an allusion to an integration of folk and contemporary music.
